It is important for nurses to try to improve their interpersonal relationship and communication skill. The purpose of this study was to examine the nurse's inerpersonal conflict and expression with physicians, other nurses and patients & their caregivers. A convenient sample of 62 RN-BSN students were recruited. The data collection was done from August, 2001 to September, 2001. Nurses experienced the most conflicts with high-positioned nurses, then doctors, patients and their families, administrators, nurse-aid, nurse colleagues and lower-positioned nurses. There was a significant correlation between nurse's interpersonal conflict with doctors and nurse's age & career, between with high-positioned nurses and region of hospitals & nurse's position. The expression that nurses least-like from physicians was 'Do it as order'. From other nurses was 'manner of speech such like order'. And from patients and their family was 'naming such like young lady or sisters'. The other side, the expression that nurses most like expression from physicians and ohter nurses was 'You are excellent'. From patients and their family was 'You are kindness'. In conclusion, it is necessary to improve nurse's communication skills and interpersonal relationships.
Key Words: Nurse, interpersonal conflict, communication
